Federal State Unitary Enterprise "State ATM Corporation" took stock of air traffic services provided during the XXIX World Winter Universiade 2019, which ended last week in Krasnoyarsk.
“Central Siberia Air Navigation” and “Western Siberia Air Navigation” branches with the direct participation of State ATM Corporation’s Head Office developed and implemented action plans to provide air traffic services during the Universiade. Restricted and prohibited areas were established in the airspace of Krasnoyarsk region in order to ensure flight safety. Flight permits were issued by the interdepartmental field office, which included representatives of security agencies and FATA. Flight plans were processed by the operational units of the Joint ATM System.
On the competitions days, including the days prior and after them, 1,298 takeoff and landing operations were conducted at the airport of Krasnoyarsk (Yemelyanovo). The ATC peak load was recorded on March 12, the final day of the Universiade - 89 takeoff and landing operations per day. Moreover, during the competition ATS was provided to UAVs (5) to conduct aerial footage, flights of balloons in the restricted and prohibited areas (39) and GA (2).
It is worth noting, that there were no emergencies or equipment failures that could affect the regularity and safety of flights during the Universiade.
Airspace utilization procedure was violated only once throughout the event. Meanwhile, according to the figures provided by the Krasnoyarsk International Airport, about 130,000 passengers and 1,400 tons of baggage were handled during the Winter Universiade.
